IYC demands justice for slain Izu Joseph

10:35 Oct 21 2016 Rivers, Nigeria

Family, Army differ on circumstances leading to 3SC star’s death
The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) has again demanded justice for what it described as ‘the cold-blooded murder of an innocent Ijaw youth,’ Joseph Izu, who was a footballer with Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan, by soldiers in Okaki, near Yenagoa.This comes on the heels of conflicting accounts of the player’s death by his family and the Nigerian Army.

The young 3SC defender and another young man were killed by some soldiers at Okarki Town in Ahoada West Local Government Area of Rivers State on Sunday.

A statement signed by Elvis Donkemezuo, factional President of the IYC Worldwide, condemned the growing trend of ‘senseless and wanton killing’ of Ijaw Youths by security operatives that are supposed to protect them.
